Statue of John Greig, holder of Rangers' record for most appearances made for the club

This is a list of notable footballers who have played for Rangers.

The list includes all players that have appeared in one hundred or more first-team (league, Scottish Cup, Scottish League Cup, Scottish Challenge Cup or European competition) matches for the club which totals 243 current and former players. Further to this, a player can also be included where they are regarded as having played a significant role for the club (e.g. players involved in the 1971–72 Cup Winners' Cup campaign or have been named club captain), but the reason for their inclusion should be indicated in the Notes column. All Rangers Hall of Fame members are denoted by an emboldened name.

For a full list of all Rangers players with Wikipedia articles see Category:Rangers F.C. players. For player appearance records see Rangers F.C. records.

Players should be listed according to the date they first signed with the club. Appearances and goals are for competitive first-team matches only; wartime matches are excluded. Substitute appearances included.

Notable players

Barry Ferguson was a treble winning captain.

Club captains

Since the clubs formation in 1872, over thirty players have permanently held the position of club captain for Rangers F.C. The first club captain was Tom Vallance, who was captain from 1876 to 1882. The longest-serving captain is John Greig, who was club captain from 1965 until his retirement in 1978. The current club captain is James Tavernier, who took over from Lee Wallace in 2018.

Although many players have held the position of captain during matches and in many occasions several matches in a row, when the club captain was injured or suspended, this list only includes players that have been officially appointed as the captain of Rangers Football Club.

Hall of fame

The Rangers F.C. Hall of fame is a list established in 2000 by the then Rangers chairman, David Murray, the first of any club in Britain.[36] He decided that the club should remember and honour the achievements and contribution made to Rangers by its finest players throughout its history. A mahogany panel above the famous marble staircase was assigned to display the names of those former players inducted into the Hall of Fame and an annual presentation ceremony was instigated where the players honoured received their award.

The following five criteria are considered by the panel when selecting new members include the individuals service to the club including the number of appearances made, the honours and international caps won whilst with the club and the players exceptional ability.

The first member elected was Moses McNeil, one of the founders of Rangers.
